Der Schutz genetischer Daten: Unter besonderer by Cosima Vossenkuhl

By Cosima Vossenkuhl

Die inzwischen weit fortgeschrittenen Möglichkeiten der examine menschlichen Erbmaterials rufen einerseits Hoffnung und Erwartungen, andererseits eine diffuse Angst vor genetischem Determinismus und Reduktionismus hervor. Aber welches Wissen vermittelt ein Gentest überhaupt? Genetische Testergebnisse sind in hohem Maße interpretationsbedürftig. Die mit der Missinterpretation oder dem Missverständnis von Testergebnissen verbundenen Gefahren sind dabei kaum zu überschätzen. Nach einer schwierigen und über Jahrzehnte andauernden Debatte ist das Gendiagnostikgesetz (GenDG) im Februar 2010 in Kraft getreten. Allerdings wird das GenDG der Notwendigkeit verbindlicher Vorgaben zum Schutze des Einzelnen vor der Kenntnis seiner eigenen genetischen Disposition und vor der Verwendung seiner genetischen Daten und Proben durch Dritte bestenfalls partiell gerecht.  Die Autorin verwertet die Vorgeschichte des noch jungen Gesetzes und erläutert die Regelungsmotive und Gefahrenpotentiale im Bereich der Gendiagnostik. Anhand der wichtigsten Regelungen des GenDG werden seine Leitprinzipien herausgearbeitet und die Grenzen und Defizite des Gesetzes offengelegt. Die gravierendsten Regelungslücken bestehen nach Auffassung der Autorin im Hinblick auf die Forschung am Menschen (Humanbiobanken) und genetische Untersuchungen zu nicht-medizinischen Zwecken (life-style-tests, Verhaltensgenetik). Das Buch analysiert die geltende Rechtslage und zeigt anhand noch bestehender Defizite die Schwerpunkte der künftigen Diskussion über die Gendiagnostik auf.
